  • Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown is out now with Linux support

    inXile Entertainment have released Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown, the first major expansion for their post-apocalyptic RPG and it's quite a big one.

    "The towering factory complex of Steeltown manufactures all the tech that keeps Colorado running and the Patriarch in power—trucks, armor, weapons, and robots. But deliveries from Steeltown have stopped cold, and all the Patriarch is getting from Abigail Markham—Steeltown's leader—are excuses. When he sends the Rangers to investigate, they find the place is a powder keg with the fuse already lit. The workers are striking, bandits raid with impunity, and nobody is allowed through the gates, not even on the business of the Patriarch. Without help, Steeltown could crash and burn for good, and take Markham with it—but maybe that's just what it needs. The Rangers will have to decide that for themselves."

    It's also built with Godot Engine, so it's awesome to see more developers opt for using FOSS tools to build their games.

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gets some big changes for non-Prime accounts | GamingOnLinux

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is going through some changes, as Valve attempt to deal with the bad actors now it's free to play with big changes to non-Prime accounts.

    Prime, for those unaware, is a type of account status for CS:GO, given to all when CS:GO went free to play to enable a special matchmaking pool for Prime users. Additionally, you could pay for Prime or earn it through playing it.

    Now though, there is no free path to Prime to help deal with "bad actors". On top of that, Valve has introduced Unranked matchmaking. New players will no longer gain XP, drops or skill groups as all of those are exclusive to Prime Status players. If free players buy Prime in the next two weeks, Skill Group and XP progress will carry over but after that it seems it will vanish. Hopefully then, this will seriously slow down bots and give less incentive for hackers as they cannot just spin up a fresh account and mess with everyone - unless they pay.

  • Prepare to smash blocks together as Petal Crash Online is out now in Beta | GamingOnLinux

    Petal Crash Online brings the fantastic style and gameplay from Petal Crash to everyone across the world to compete, with it currently being an exclusive Beta on itch.io.

    Safe to say I was quite a fan of the original single-player / split-screen version, with it being a game that was practically begging for an online mode. Developer Friend & Fairy has now delivered with Petal Crash Online! This is no ordinary addition though, it's a full standalone "coded from the ground" with support for rollback netcode for playing and spectating to ensure everything keeps in sync. So a lot of care and attention went into making it a great online multiplayer game.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
